My firm is completely dedicated to helping seriously injured people who need legal help.  We value our clients, we listen to our clients, and we protect our clients.

We have a record in trial that is second to none, and the corporations and insurance companies we battle know this fact, and give our clients the respect they deserve.


We have special expertise in helping victims of traumatic brain injury.  Brain injury cases are very challenging.  Theyrequire a great deal of specialized education and experience by the trial lawyer, in order to obtain the best results.  


I have tried a many cases for psychiatric injuries arising from the trauma of a serious accident.  These manifest as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, agoraphobia, and other mental difficulties.


We represent victims of spine and spinal cord injuries.  Victims of Quadriplegia, paraplegia demand the very best representaiton to safeguard your future.  We have an outstanding record of results, and have never lost a case against an insurance company.
